Lumileds Improves CrispWhite Luxeon CoBs
Improving the performance of retail lighting quality, light output and efficacy
Lumileds has announced substantial performance improvements for its 90 and 95 CRI Luxeon CoBs with CrispWhite technology. Now, the two CRI versions offer light output within 1-2 percent of each other and efficacy within 1-2 lumens per Watt.
Lumileds patented CrispWhite technology is said to bring a vivid and bright look to retail settings. Its unique ability to highlight bright whites while also revealing the richest colors found in clothing, paints, and other goods results in more inviting and attractive displays.
Proper lighting is central to the perception and evaluation of goods. It is a critical component of branding, highlighting, and presenting merchandise, and creating a space where shoppers want to visit. CrispWhite Technology has proven to be stable and reliable. Lumileds scientists succeeded in developing the technology so that it would improve color rendering without sacrificing efficacy and they continue to improve this technology in our CoB products.
With CrispWhite Technology, whites are said to appear brighter and sharper - like they do in outdoor lighting conditions - than is possible with standard LEDs. And with 95CRI, color fidelity is as good as it gets. Lumileds Luxeon CoBs with CrispWhite Technology are available with light emitting surfaces (LES) of 6 to 19mm at 3000K and with CRI of 90 or 95.
“We've seen widespread adoption of CrispWhite Technology and now with 95CRI performance breaking the 100 lumen per Watt level, we're seeing a majority of new designs adopt the higher CRI option,” said Keen Oun Yap, senior product manager at Lumileds. “We expect this product to increasingly be the standard for retail environments in which specifiers and merchandisers do not want to compromise on fidelity or accuracy of colors and whites.”
Luxeon CrispWhite Technology was developed specifically for retail applications utilizing downlights and spotlights where store owners and retail customers desire the most accurate color representation. This is easily achieved with the Luxeon CoBs.
